A top-of-the-line oven is a home chef’s best friend. With so many choices — ranging from electric and gas ovens, built-in ovens, double ovens and more — it’s easy to find one that fits perfectly into your kitchen.
With so many options for ovens, it’s easy to get lost in all the details. Here’s a handy list of pros and cons that will help you easily decide:
Gas: This style can be more efficient than its electric counterpart and will heat up and cook food much more quickly. However, you’ll need a gas connection and outside venting options in order to install one.
Electric: An electric oven can be less expensive than gas and typically offers a wider selection. They might also have a larger capacity, but typically take longer to heat up and use more energy than gas ovens.
Convection: A convection oven will cook your food quickly by moving hot air around the unit with a fan. They tend to be more expensive and are smaller due to the addition of a fan inside.
